Client Reviews

My Name is Javier Marshall and I go to DME Academy During the off season I was looking for someone to push me and help me get better and honestly trusting Coach Stoff was the best decision I could have made. We worked out everyday day at 6am he guided me and helped me understand what type of focus was required to become a professional basketball player. My jump shot was non existent and not consistent at all prior to this training but now I have one of the highest efficiency rates on my team. Coach Kristoff is not only my mentor but a brother that has changed my life and reignited a fire in me. Thank you Coach Stoff
My name is Marcel Cullens and I go to the University of Tampa Over the past Summer I spent most of each day working with Coach Kristoff to build and improve my overall basketball skill set. We focused on shooting, defense, passing, handles, co-ordination as well as how to function as a team and work as one. We also did a lot of conditioning which elevated our pace of play and took it to the next level. I started working with Coach Kristoff first in late 2021 and throughout our time together I can honestly say he has taken my game and my mentality to a place that I don’t believe I could have gotten to on my own. The enthusiasm and heart he brings to each training session regardless of time or distance taught my teammates and I a lot about commitment and understanding that hard work beats talent every single time. Coach Kristoff builds those who want to get better and will make sure that they get to where they want to be.
My name is Austin Omondi and I go to Oak Hill Academy During the summer break I was working out with Coach Kristoff, he helped and improve various parts of my game. He improved my handle, shot, my defense and my decision making. He guided me through what I was doing right and how I could do it better, what I was doing wrong, and what I had to add to my game. When the season started, there was a big difference between the player I was at the beginning of the summer and the player I am now. Coach Kris was always positive in the way he approached the workout and the people he was training, he has a dream and is willing to help anyone who is determined to get better and loves the game.
